Thaos Swallowtail

Thaos Swallowtails danced aside the path to the large wetlands at Hacienda La Pacifica on 7 July in Costa Rica. Erika took this image. The species is similar to the Giant Swallowtail, but the large marks on the forewings near the body of the Thaos are square instead of round or triangular. Thaos Swallowtails are found from south Texas to Brazil. They stray north to Kansas and Oklahoma. Caterpillars look like bird droppings on exposed leaves (Butterflies and Moths Org.).
